Go with the stock rubber centered disc. That way you'll know positively and instantly when it fails...no warnings, no questions asked

I can't give you any cross-comparison perspectives, but I can give you personal perceptions and experience. I love my KEP Stage 1 PP/Sachs spring centered combo. Much lighter in weight (IIRC, 14 lbs. less). Went that direction when my stock PP/Sachs spring centered disc started slipping slightly after I did all the mods to my car. The age of the clutch and the extra HP began to show. Personally, you probably don't need to go beyond the Stage 1 with the HP you're running, unless you want to put up with a pretty stiff clutch. Some people don't like the stiffness of even the Stage 1, but I never found it all that terribly different than my stock and quickly got used to it. Hey, it's a mechanical linkage after all and will never be as easy as a hydraulic.
